Plain Old White Rice

I like getting fancy with rice, too, but sometimes you just want plain old white rice.


  • 1 part rice
  • 2 parts water
  • a pinch of salt optional
  • a pat of butter optional


  • Put it all in a pan and bring to a boil. Stir it and turn the heat down about as low as possible, to just barely a simmer. Cover and cook for 25 minutes. Stir and serve.
